Moreover, news headlines that Trump's signing of the historic tax bill could be delayed until January further dented the already weaker sentiment surrounding the greenback.

Traders now seemed to lighten their bearish USD bets and now look forward to the US releases for some fresh impetus later during the NA session. Today's economic docket features the release of final US GDP growth figures for the third-quarter, along with Philly Fed Manufacturing Index and the usual initial jobless claims.
